Stormwater Erosion Control Wattle
Coir, Straw, & Sediment Control Wattles
Stormwater Erosion Control Wattles are a reliable way to filter water as it flows into a drain system. Designed in a tubular structure, these wattles stretch across drains to remove unwanted materials as they enter the system. This helps to effectively control sediment on job sites and prevent pollution from entering a drain system.
Due to the permeability requirements for most sites, a majority of the wattles are made from natural fibers. As they filter water, they will retain sediment and enrich the surrounding area. Wattles are available in coir, straw, wood fiber, and synthetic materials. For more information, check out our Erosion Sediment Control Products.
Natural Fiber Wattles
Two of the most common materials used to construct our wattles are natural coir fiber and straw. These items are completely biodegradable and are packed at the right density to remove unwanted sediment or silt from the water.
- Diameters: 9", 12", 20"
- Construction: Wheat Straw
- Outer Netting: Biodegradeable Juts
- Diameters: 6", 9", 12"
- Construction: Mattress Coir
- Outer Netting: Biodegradable Bristle Coir Twine
Synthetic Erosion Control Wattles
As an alternative to natural fibers, Synthetic Stormwater Erosion Control Wattles can be a reliable option for any site dealing with polluted runoff. Made from a synthetic exterior and interior polymer, these wattles can be designed to target specific pollutants including activated carbon, sorb 44, heavy metals, and phosphorous.
- Standard Size: 7" x 4" x 108"
- Options: Activated Carbon, Sorb 44, Sediment, Phos Filter, Heavy Metal Removal
Coir Wattle for Check Dams
While standard stormwater erosion control wattles can be effectively used for check dams, we also offer a natural fiber product specifically designed for use in streams, rivers, and other water areas. Check Dams feature the addition of an upstream and downstream filter apron. This further stabilizes rivers and helps prevent erosion.
- Coir Mattress Fiber Fillings
- Bristle Coir Netting
- Height Options: 9" or 2"
- Lengths: 15 feet
- Upstream Filter Apron: 8" or 10"
- Downstream Filter Apron: 17" or 24"
- Downstream Apron: Helps to eliminate erosion commonly caused by water that flows over the wattle while
its in use.
- Upstream Apron: Works to trap sediment, control erosion, and prevent undercutting.
Additional Filtration Options
In addition to the stormwater erosion control wattles featured here, we also offer several additional products
designed to help with filtration and erosion control in locations such as construction sites, rivers, banks, and more. Options include:
- Coir Logs
- Coir Rock Bags
- Dewatering Bags
- Coir Mats
- Silt Fences
- Geotextiles Tubes
